We made snowflakes by melting wax crayon shavings between sheets of wax paper! They are so simple and can really be used for any season at all!
Just grate whatever color crayons you'd like.
Blue and white makes me think winter
Sprinkle some shavings on a piece of wax paper.
With this activity less is more!
Place another piece of wax paper on top of the shavings.
Cover the wax paper with a few sheets of paper or a towel
and iron on low setting
You only have to iron long enough to get the look you desire
It doesn't take long at all!
Be sure to use a towel or sheets of paper
the melted crayon will bleed through the wax paper
When our sheets were cool enough
I traced a snowflake cookie cutter onto the paper and cut them out
and punched a hole for hanging
Knowing these would be in the window, we wanted some sparkle
Miss C dipped just the tips in glue and sprinkled them with glitter
When the glue was dry I strung them up with fishing line
and hung them in the window
They look gorgeous with the sun shining through them!
Like I said, this activity is perfect for any season, just change the colors and shapes to fit whatever holiday or season you're making them for!
Here are a couple examples:
